- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
22:5 Shall not wear - Namely, ordinarily or unnecessarily, for in some cases this may be lawful, as to make an escape for one's life. Now this is forbidden, both for decency sake, that men might not confound those sexes which God hath distinguished, that all appearance of evil might be avoided, such change of garments carrying a manifest sign of effeminacy in the man, of arrogance in the woman, of lightness and petulancy in both; and also to cut off all suspicions and occasions of evil, which this practice opens a wide door to.

I think women should wear dresses/skirts all the time and and not even cut their hair to me it symbolizes feminimity. For example if you see a man and woman standing side by side both with pants and t-shirt on and both of their hair chopped off and they are standing with their backs facing you. How would you tell them apart? You wouldnt be able to and if he wanted the women to dress and look like men, then why would he even create men and women. My opinion is mine just like everybody else has them and it might not mean much, but just sit and think about it. God bless.

If Aaron wears skirt, jesus wears gown.Ask yourself what deut 22;5 is talking about, obviously not physical clothing.let the holy spirit be our guard.

My brethren, the totality of this gospel we preach is that we shall all comform to the image of his dear son jesus christ. Then, we made it.Going by the Deut 22:5 i will like us to think as christ like over certain issued like these.Truely speaking our God is great God and full of wisdom, he's keeping us quiet because we didnt want to take the matter back to him who is the founder of it from the biginning.From the above comment i saw alot of self interest in many people veiw but the truth is that God will not break his word to please man.That shall put on what pertaining to but sex,who God was refering to,what was the bone of contetion,did God specifically pin point us that this what belong to and this to the woman or did women and men went to hid under this scripture to do evil.what i know is that the physical feature of a woman and man are not thesame therefore their compulsore are not thesame.Law is physical that most be kept but trut and Grace are spiritual which without the power of the holy spirit we can not get it right.Now as we go to God with certain issued let therefore go to God withDeut 22:5 for more understanding that will heal the heart of millions christian.God bless us all.

I agree that women should not wear men’s clothing and vice versa. But let’s keep in mind that throughout the textual context in first few books of the Old Testament, robes were the garments used by both, men and women. So the difference was most likely in the design and decoration. Likewise today, if I Christian women want to wear pants, it would be appropriate to wear pants designed specifically for women, keeping in mind modesty.

To me it has been hitting my heart so i think deuteronomy 22:5 flashed more on transgenderism.
BITRUS SAMUEL MAGAJI's comment on 2013-10-15 01:19:00:
All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living, so that the person who serves God may be fully qualified and equipped to do every kind of good deed (2 Timothy 3:16 ).
This means that all the books, chapters and verses, in the holy bible from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, is inspired by God. God is unchangeable and when he say yes nobody can say no or semi-yes and vice versa. So please don't be deceived by anybody (Mathew 24:4 ).
Olivia's comment on 2013-10-09 09:17:45:
God's Word does not change, however times do. At the time of writing, men and women were wearing dresses. What was the distinct difference between the two? Today men and women wear pants, however the pattern or design is suited for each sex. Therefore, interpretation of the scriptures has to be given through the Holy Spirit, because what is acceptable for me may not be acceptable for you. This is why we have to be careful not to stumble one another with our opinions. God is coming back for the heart of his people. He is just and gracious to overlook such ignorance.

When a father writes a will, the will is enforced to the latter, meaning it is followed to the very end. If the whole bible is the perfect will of God, it should be followed to the very end! If this scripture Deut 22:5 keeps emerging and emerging, it really means that God is interested and won't drop it for any reason. He must have given personal and to be enforced revelations about holiness to Pastors and founders of churches who had this initially as their stand but now tell people its the heart that matters, by the way, in the final pages of his will he gives a warning to women also of adornment in 1st Timothy 2.9-10 and 1st Peter 3:3-4 which he won't change on any Ground! It's the fathers final wish, let's follow it to d latter and stop diluting scriptures with theology from the best seminaries and bible schools! Not one Jot from scriptures will pass away. Please let's not go to hell! Please

Check for the meaning of the original Hebrew word “partaineth to a man “ , then make your contributions.

Adebayo's comment on 2013-09-26 06:16:22:
Human being are found of justifying themselves on their error.The word of God says woman should not put on anything that pertain to man and man should not put on anything that pertain to woman but some people are acting again the will of God because their pastor allow it and because of western way of life but i think bible should be our standard can u put on opposite sex dress and go out for evangelism?
George's comment on 2013-09-25 01:44:25:
Who determine what to wear; I mean what is for man and what is for woman, God, Bible or the societies?
Clark's comment on 2013-09-22 08:48:44:
We do live in the apostolic church age at this present time, the dispensation of grace as it is called. So lets take a look at who has apostolic authority. 1 Peter 1-13 this says that grace is given to whom Jesus reveals himself to, ... the will of God is holiness, be ye holy for I am holy. Now DOING the will of God is righteousness, Jesus christ the righteous. We are not, but Jesus is. So we are made righteous in him, so now we understand that grace is given to those that DO the will of God ... holiness for grace is not given in unrighteousness. (ie not diong Gods will)

Boimmanuel's comment on 2013-09-20 02:57:33:
hmmmmmmmn,the bible is an inspiration from God, i believe God knows the future and know all this will come as a confusion to MEN. THE BIBLE IS A BASIC INSTRUCTION THAT WILL GUIDE WE CHRISTIANS and that's those who wants to follow it.
Let no man put on what pertains to woman is different from let no man put on what a woman has worn BEFORE...(don't get it twisted)
Aron putting on skirt is the usual dressing of old and its general to all....even now we see men plat hair, will u still tell me the attachment he used has not been used by a woman before and so its not a sin?
Pls bretheren,lets apply wisdom here and those who knows the truth,stick by the truth and dont let the world sweep u away.
I believe there are still somethings to come and has been recorded in the bible which will show up in coming generations, will they also say the bible is an old thing? and does not refer to them?
Donmoen sand a song (Ancient word, ever true,changing me and changing you...is it changing you at all?)
